    Because a lot of bad things happen in the world because people believe in these fairy tales so it's only logical that we attempt to show people that they've been brainwashed. If you had an 18-year old child who still believed his stuffed animals were alive, would you not rather he realized that's not actually true?

    Do theists have a monopoly on "a lot of bad things happen in the world"?

    He is just sore because Jesus had more world wide influence than Alexander even though he never held a political or military position of power. Hell, he did not even write about himself.

    Comparing Jesus to stuffed animals again?

    Are you that disingenuous or simply that daft?

    I have no reason to doubt the existence of AtG. I do have reasons to doubt the existence of supernatural beings.

    No, I think we should attempt to get rid of all bad things in the world. Not just religion.

    Uisng this logic Satan also had more influence than AtG. What's your point (silly question, I know)?

    Tell me why the comparison is wrong.

    Or just do some name calling and walk away. Whatever you please.

    Whether you are daft or disingenuous, trying to explain anything further would be futile.

    Again, you need to come to terms that Jesus is the most influential person that has ever lived. Ignoring it and trying to compare him to stuffed animals only makes you look like a bigger fool than you are.

    No, we are not talking about Christ, we are talking about GOD. Look at the title of the thread:
    Why do Atheists argue against someone they don't believe exists.(GOD)

    The OP is about God, not 'Christ the man'. Many (possibly most) Atheists do accept the possibility (or even likelihood) that 'Christ the man' existed. What they universally do not believe is that God exists (or that Christ was his son).

    It's not toasty at all, it's pleasantly cool.
